BOWIE

Man, I wish someone would hurry up and invent a way that I could listen to these records on the move.  Preferably in some format with higher fidelity that's not prone to scratching or getting dirty.

This post is the UK Record Store Day list. NME = UK music publication.

Here is a printable PDF of the US Record Store Day list. Same, but different.

I'll wait until prices are announced before I start making my shopping list.  Record Store Day can get expensive really fast.

It'd be pretty neat to score the Jesus Jones one (I still listen to Doubt, solid album), Tears for Fears, Mastodon (already have limited versions of Remission, Leviathan, and Call of the Mastodon), and RATM releases (have the limited People Of The Sun EP).

Managed to score the limited Refused release from last year's record store day.

Likes me some limited release vinyl. Got a few one of 100/150 pressings even. ( [CAR_BOMB]'s first and most recent albums in particular). Most tend to be one of 2000 or 2500 though, ala Dillinger Escape Plan singles, Agoraphobic Nosebleed picture disks, Alice in Chains Jar of Flies/Sap double EP.  Nirvana's promo only Verse Chorus Verse, NIN's Closer To God single...
Too many to list off the top of my head.

Oh, and that live recording of The National would be pretty awesome as well. Have a few of theirs on vinyl already.

Thanks!
Curious what is on the Bowie discs. Want the Zep and Johnny Winter.

Because it's all about getting the music out there to the fans............dozens of records at a time.

Old record store guy here. I didn't like vinyl, even when it was the only game in town. I'm sure AF not buying it now. Put 'em all on Spotify, pleez.
 
2018-03-07 11:28:24 AM  
the only thing i'm interested  in is Beck's remix of .....fark....either "Lights Of Home" or "Best Thing About Me", or the ltd edituion vinyl single.  it;s the b-side to whatever song is the "a" side.

but i don't 'do' vinyl so i'll just wait for it on itunes.

That Hillbillies In Hell compilation looks interesting...

I don't have anything against vinyl, it's just the contrived "collector's edition" mentality that gets me; the "buy it and save it, by no means play it" / wait for it to increase in value-mindset.  Like people who buy comic books, never to open them or enjoy them, strictly as an object to have.  So companies produce records in small batches strictly for these people.

For a format pitched at people hell bent on blathering on about the sonic superiority of vinyl, there sure are a lot of goofy coloured ones & even worse, picture discs.
The needle doesn't even touch the vinyl on those. It touches the clear plastic coating on top of the picture that's laid on top of the vinyl. That's why they sound so shiatty.
The only thing they're good for is novelty wall clocks.

I get that aspect of it, but I buy my records to play. I mostly play on my turntable what I've had in my collection since I was a teen (Hendrix, Zep, Sabbath) because it sounds like it should to my ears. I only occasionally buy new music on vinyl. Last new record I bought was the black Alabama Shakes 2 record set. I stopped my sister from becoming a collector, and just reminded her that she was happy as just a listener. She was on the Third Man kick, and was looking to dump a bunch of money into it.
/sold Primus Brown Album for $200, Tales from the Punchbowl for $150 and some other 90s titles in the $100-$125 range.
Have a few other "rare" titles I'll be putting up.
//sell while the selling is good
///I own an original Blind Melon Soup. They rereleased it and I picked up one of those too for $30. After they sold out I sold it for $100. Now you can find the rerelease for $25. I've been offered $400 for the original, but the wife and I play it all the time.
///enjoy your records, but sell while the money is good

OK, I take the point that vinyl can be higher fidelity than a digital format, but that's only often edge cases for people with ridiculously expensive setups.

Plus you probably need a fully analog recording to actually make use of the analogue, lossless fidelity of an LP.  I suspect most of these LPs have all been digitally remastered, and I expect most of these are going to be played on USB turntables and other such things with some sort of digital processing on the way.

Much of the reissued vinyl has been pressed with the masters used for the CDs. They won't sound any better than the last CD release. Even worse if on stupid coloured vinyl.
DVDA went a long way to provide a higher quality than CD. As did SACD. But now it's really easy (legally too) to get hi res digital copies of some great albums.

I'll say it: Fark Record store day. Fark it up its ear with a rusty scalpel. For me, that's the day when my local shops are completely filled with idiots clogging the aisles, gawking at their nostalgia because it's the one time they ever go to a record store, and it's a cash grab for novelty presses.

For me, any day is record store day. Yesterday I spent $200 on a few good tunes, and maybe in a few weeks or so I'll go back and shop for more, just like I have been doing consistently since I've been collecting records.

While I'm happy to see that the LP format isn't endangered by any means, I don't like how Record Store Day has become a media event, and therefore, just another bad cash grab.

You've been offered $400 for a copy of Blind Melons Soup? You should have taken it, since even sealed it's only worth $250 for the original capitol pressing, much less played as yours was.

Yeah, I go to a record store at least once a week, usually to at least 2 stores.  RSD is the day I don't go.

Exactly. It doesn't have to be a super expensive setup, but it should at least be an analog setup. My setup has been piecemealed together over the years, but it's fully analog, save for an Onkyo CD player that has a built-in DAC and an Echo for just jamming out some Spotify/TuneIn/SiriusXM/Pandora on the fly. And as for albums, buyer beware on this recent stuff that hasn't necessarily been mastered for vinyl. Some of it sounds as bad as some of the early stuff that came out on CD before they figured out you needed to master differently for CD (I'm thinking the first CD issue of Rumours, specifically).

Just want the Flaming Lips ep.

Wish Sigue Sigue Sputnik would re-release some stuff tho.

kind of underwhelming this year. i'll probably seek out the descendents 7".
/the last RSD must haves for me were the black friday mike watt "engine room" issue and the big star "complete columbia."
//missed the actual big star columbia gig because i was working at a record store during the gig...

I don't really have time to hit the record stores, but maybe I'll pull the trigger on my discogs cart.

Streaming is great, mp3 etc is great, vinyl is great... it's all great. No need to talk shiat about different forma--yeah welcome to fark I know.
